In [this interview](http://www.timespace.com/features/2365/hospital-records-and-general-drum-and-bass-legend-danny-byrd-gives-us-the-lowdown.html), Danny Byrd talks about his use of Rob Papen RP Distort. He says, "RP Distort I haven´t had long, but I´ve been using it quite a bit. Sounds great on baselines, giving them extra movement with the built in LFO´s. Also been using it a lot on vocals, to dirty them up a bit.. theres a million distortion plug ins out there, but RP Distort is my choice for 2012, its like a swiss army knife of distortion!"more
Very little people I know use this unit and it's a shame. This is a very versatile little distortion box. I use the lo-fi section extensively to add some nice grit and high frequency content to my sounds. The possibility to use filtering pre and post distortion in the form of EQ and high and lowpass filters is awesome. Changing the routing is a little bit confusing sometimes with all the options. The one thing I don't like very much is the widen function. It uses some sort of very fast panning algorithm to make sounds appear wider but can cause mono compatibility problems. So be aware when using this function. The gapper distortion algorithm is one I also use very often to add some nice distortion to hardstyle kicks. I've only touched the surface of this little beauty, so be sure to check it out if you're in to some creative and different distortion. I definitely recommend it.
